    Ironhide is just too superior to the Hasbro version... yellow stripe, black upper arms and red lower arms, and the windows, WOW, the windows look so much better... I'm holding out for that version.

    galvatron has the STUPIDEST chrome use in this line, and that's saying a lot. it's just terrible. the purple is worse too. I love the universe figure's metallic purple.

    They photoshopped or changed his neck though. it's longer in their photo than it is on the universe figure. They've also mistransformed his right arm to get more posability out of him. it's not locked down.

    Ironhide though, I'm gonna get him. he looks much better. the universe version is just garbage compared to it. I don't even mind the chrome use. it's very tasteful and doesnt distract at all.

    Shit. Looks like I'm gonna have to get the Henkei of Ironhide afterall. Even with the crappy chrome & yellow lines, it's still light years better than Hasbro's blue-faced version. And I'm LOVIN that there's no eye-sore Oregon license plate on this one.

    Another Henkei Version I am Getting! I Love my Ironhide but the Henkei version just made a great toy EVEN BETTER!

    He looks even more cartoon accurate and no more blue face and the chrome looks awesome! I am gonna get this for sure.

    Nothing could make me get another Universe Galvatron tho his colors weren't a problem it was the arms falling off easy and the back heavy pack that made him fall over.

    Wow...that Ironhide looks all kinds of awesome. One of the few Classics 2.0s that looks far better than Hasbro's release.

    Galvy's only plus is the extension of purple on his left arm.

    Ironhide is beautiful. I want him so bad.

    I just knew they'd use that light purple. They also replaced nearly all the silver with black. Which you can barely even see because of the dark gray. Really bad choice of color there. Also the chrome just doesn't make any sense at all.

    Ironhide looks fine, but not really enough of a difference to pay the extra money.

    I hate the Chrome on Galvi, but they did get rid of the orange.
    And Iornhide is sweet.

    yea, i miss that about it too.

    i also preferred the black lower arms to, on the classics, the only part i don't like is the blue, but i can live with it for half the price :)

    Hehe, nothing against your State man :)  I just think the license plate really kills the aesthetic of the figure and looks a little silly sitting all front & center like that.

    Other than Megatron, this is the only other Henkei repaint that's managed to grab my interest in the slightest. I generally prefer Hasbro's versions, but they really f'd things up with the powder blue face & windows. If we can expect the same from Ratchet, then I'll definitely be getting the Henkei version of him too.
